Hello,
I am in need of some direction to solve the following problems:

I have created a Component (TM4C123), however it has the following problems.
I am in need of some direction to solve these problems:
A PNG image is attached of all the screens I used in the process, it shows the problems.

Problems:
1. The Schematic Symbol Image does not show on the schematic
2. The Symbol Image does not show on the Attached Pattern screen

So if I'm understanding this, the component objects (schematic symbols/drawing objects and pins) do not show, but the pattern (PCB drawing objects and pads) does. Right now the only thing that comes to mind is to check to see if there are two identically-named components. If so, maybe one has drawing objects and pins (schematic symbols) and the other does not. One other thing, just for fun use the Zoom Extents tool in the Schematic Editor (hit the [Home] key if you are using v3) to see if there is anything orbiting outside the normal viewing area.

Hi Tom,

Your understanding is correct.

I have deleted all the TM4C123 pattern and component files I could find, and deleted the library pointers from DipTrace. I am certain that the root of the problem is my lack of understanding how to manage the DipTrace library system, thus I ended-up creating duplicate components. Tomorrow I will try to recreate the part.

Thank you for your guidance. I will let you know how it goes.

Bob
